The 2015 Winter Meeting of the Scots Philosophical Association will be held at the University of Glasgow on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 December.

 There is no registration fee for the conference, but there will be a charge of £15 per head for the conference dinner, which will be held at Asian Gourmet, a good Sichuanese restaurant near the department.

 Please e-mail Ben Colburn ( to register, by 5 pm on Friday 27 November. Please indicate whether you also want to come to the dinner, and if so, whether you have any dietary requirements that I should take into account; and if you do want to come to dinner, please bring cash (exactly £15, if possible) on the evening.

 We are not arranging accommodation for attendees, but here are some good and inexpensive hotels in the West End of Glasgow, all of which are within easy walking distance of the department.

 Please e-mail me if you have any questions; I append a programme below.

 Best wishes,

 Ben Colburn
